Jazz Need to Trade Andrei Kirilenko Now!

Ever since Carlos Boozer arrived in Utah there have been trade rumors involving him. This year has been the first of his three years in Utah that Boozer is 100% healthy and he is turning heads. Boozer is having an All-Star season along with sophomore Deron Williams. In the same amount of time there has been one player that is not turning heads and has not had an All-Star year. Andrei Kirilenko was a NBA All-Star in 2003, since then his shooting is down, his points are down, his rebounds are down, and the only heads that are turning are the ones looking around saying, "Who is this? Who took away Andrei and replaced him with that Russian ogre from Rocky IV?" Andrei still has the ability to block shots, but he is not a center, and the Jazz have needed his scoring, rebounding, and passing desperately. Coach Jerry Sloan has been upset with Kirilenko as recent as a couple of weeks ago when he sat down with Andrei and told him to "stop acting and start playing," referring to Andrei trying to draw fouls instead of just shooting the ball. Last week Jazz owner Larry Miller gave Jazz GM Kevin O'Connor permission to do whatever it takes to make the team better before the NBA trade deadline in February.
Psss.....Kevin.....trade Kirilenko.....
